Linden is an excellent school. I have 2 children who attend, who are both at different learning levels. My older child needed reading intervention and speech therapy, both of which were addressed his first weeks of Kindergarten. My younger child is gifted and is pushed in the areas that is needed, rather than being left to do work that is too easy. I have never had a bad experience with any teachers or staff. I genuinely feel that my children's best interests are at heart with everyone there. I'm very happy we chose to live in the Linden school district when selecting a home 5 years ago.

Because our grandson is doing very good in this school and he likes the school. If a child likes the school you know he will learn his work.

Linden is an amazing school. Principal Ward is very open to suggestions, always available to talk with parents and the kids love him. Every morning he is outside opening doors and making sure things are running smoothly. I have never seen a principal know each students name. The teachers are also great. They truly care about their students and go above & beyond to help them learn.

Linden is a very good school. The staff is excellent and cares alot about the students. My three kids have attended Linden and have done exceptionally well. The quality of the classes is very high. The parent involvement is awesome. Linden has a great sense of community. The kids have a variety of clubs they can choose to join. I am glad my children have had the opportunity to attend Linden.

Linden is very good school overall. It's greatest strength is a very involved parent community. Many extra curricular activities are offered by parents or staff such as foreign language clubs, chess, science, and fitness clubs. The physical education program is superior, focusing not on competition but on fitness and confidence. This school has a solid music and art program, something cut in many other schools. Linden's teachers are very dedicated. Linden's weakest point is that the curriculum has become focused almost entirely on the standardized tests. This saps inspiration even from the best teachers. However, since this is the federal measure of school performance, it's the same in almost every public school. Upper grades at Linden are routinely assigned way too much repetitive busy work; very little critical thinking. But this, sadly, seems to prepare them for the transition to middle school. Administration responds fairly to parent concerns about children.
